Major Oil Companies Now Using the Catch-It for Improved Oilfield Safety

Share Article

R&C Products’ Catch-It has been enthusiastically adopted by multiple major oil companies drilling in Utah’s oil-rich Uintah Basin. All of these companies report improved workplace cleanliness and safety as well as a more environmentally friendly operation.

The Catch-It, an oilfield safety device invented, designed and produced by R&C Products, LLC, is now being adopted by some significant industry players. The world-renowned Uintah Basin, one of the richest U.S. sources of commercial oil and gas production, is drilled regularly by a number of large oil companies. Some of these companies have recently adopted the Catch-It for use on that basin.

The results have been so impressive that all of the companies that have adopted the innovative device intend to continue using it for the foreseeable future. Moreover, these companies may even expand their use of the Catch-It to other drilling sites in the United States, Canada, and elsewhere. The recently invented product, retailing for less than $70 per unit (20-unit minimum order) at, is a strong value that offers significant benefits and improvements on multiple fronts.

As detailed at, the patented product has been custom-made for the safety and convenience of the many oilfield workers who gauge oil tanks as part of their work routine. Taking those measurements involve taking the tape gauge up a walkway to the top of the tank and then return said gauge, now dripping with oil, to their truck and on to the next tank. This process can result in perilously slippery walkway surfaces along with unnecessary oil spills on the oilfields themselves as workers make their way from the bottom of the tank to their truck. Primitive “solutions”, usually in the form of rusty old buckets, have failed to address the problem adequately, especially given the significant workplace safety issues of the oilfield.

From the truck to the tank and back, the Catch-It addresses those issues on a consistently reliable basis. As R&C Products co-founder Richard Kofford has observed, “as people who work in the oilfields every day ourselves, we knew that our product addressed a significant unmet need in the industry.” His wife and co-founder continued, “Frankly, we’re not surprised that these companies are having a great experience with the Catch-It. We’ve spent years in the fields testing, designing, and redesigning the product until it was just right.”

Interested parties are encouraged to visit and order some product for their own use/testing. The Koffords are confident that you’ll soon to be back to the site to order more and protect more of your staff. So, it’s time to put the rickety old buckets away and take the discomfort and uncertainty out of the tank gauging experience. A thorough and professionally designed solution is just a few clicks away!
